to look at the safety of our schools. right now you have one-third of u.s. schools that do have an armed presence. a resource officer, a police officer is present in the school. why should one-third have this greater safety while the other two-thirds do not? and so this christmas season i think the highest priority should be the safety of our children and our elementary schools. i have grandchildren there, and i think one of the aspects of it would be have a greater armed presence very discrete presence, a highly trained presence, in our schools that can provide greater level of safety. >> congressman, you're absolutely right that some schools are armed right now. armed guards have not preventeded three recent massacres. there was an armed guard at columbine, as you know about. virginia tech had its own police force. ft. hood one of the most heavily secured facilities in the country. if armed guards are not preventing mass shootings at those places, why do you think arming every single school in the country will prevent more of these shootings? >> that'
